When is the best time to apply lime to a lawn?

When is the best time for you me to apply limestone to my home lawn?

Be sure to fully understand how much lime your soil needs. Lime can burn growing turf grass, the ideal time to apply is late fall whenever the turf has gone into hibernation mode. You may also be able to get away with spreading lime in the very early Spring before any growth is taking place.

Lime increases the soil pH level and basically restores the soils natural nutrients. Over time soil looses these nutrients and becomes very acidic, this is whenever you want to apply lime to your lawn.
